the theaters,, will be going full blast. Ad

view of the city either In the morning or
afternoon would discover a ball game on
every vacant lot, games ranging from the
bitter contest between the Little Blugger
and the Excelsiors In Hogan's pasture to
tha Western league games at the Vinton
street park, where Des Moines and Omaha
will struggle In a game In the morning and
one In the afternoon, probably determining
whether Omaha shall remain at the head
of the column or step down a notch.

cerili with Difficulty.
YUSOVO, European Russia, July S. Flr-j
broke out today in the Rtkovsky mine,
which yesterday was the scene of an ex
plosion of gus that resulted In a heavy lors
of life. The work of rescue and fighting
the fire Is being conducted under the
greatest difficulties. Over 200 men remain
down In the mine, shut In by falling earth
and their fate is unknown. One hundred
and sixty dead bodies already have been
brought out. Viany of the men were burned
to death while others had their heads and
limbs torn off by the force of the explo
sion. Seventy-five wounded were removed to
hospitals and of these ten already have
expired and many more are dying. It Is
believed that the present known number
of dead will he Increised by seventy-five.
The exphmlon occurred Just after the
jhift entered the mine. The last twenty
mvn nf tne r,llft were, ln tha cage at
bottom of the shaft and they were
drawn to the surface uninjured. Rescue
j par'les were at once organized and com
menced to go duwn. Six of the rescuers
were suffocated, but the others bravely
continued at work.
In the meantime the SOl miners who had
gathered at the head of the shaft became
so excited that the troops had to be sum
moned. They cleared the ground and to
day allow only members of the families
of victims to come within then- cordon.
Heartrending scenes are witnessed as the
mangled Iwdies of the dead men are
brought to the surface and given over to
the bereaved woman. Many of the wounded
are quite mad from the shock. The cause
of the explosion la not known.

when one of the clerks was demonstrating
one of the pieces of fireworks. A spark
Ignited the other pieces.
The noise of the explosion startled those
upon ail of the five floors and a panic
ensued. Smoke and flames were drawn
up tha stairways by a draft. This 'added
to the panic. A rush was made by the
panic-stricken clerks and shoppers for the
stairways and windows. Many were
trampled upon. Others tumbled down the
stairways. Others Jumped from the second
and third story windows. Many who
Jumped escaped Injury by being caught In
life rts held by firemen.

Persons In the corridors of the federal
building Thursday afternoon about 6:30 saw
a young woman rush out from the hallway
hading to the rostmuster's office and fl ng
her arms around a tall man who had Just
Stepped up to the general delivery window.
The rush of the young womsn and the fling
of her arms around the tall man's neck
were accompanied by a glad cry that told
of a yearning heart.
. The young woman was Mrs. Emma Rey
nolds. She said her home was ln Und r
wred, la. Nearly a week ago her huvband
left her after a little domestic dispute.
Latr the husband wrote to his wife's
brrther asklrg for money. The brother Im
mediately assumed the role of a dove of
pea e. Ho re lied stating that a letter con
taining money would be awaiting Mr. Rey
nolds at the general delivery window of

In the postmaster s office Just across the
corridor she confided her mission. Toward
her recalcitrant spouse she cherished no

"He was always the best husband In the
world to me.' she said. "Oh, It was all my
fault that he left. But I want Mm back.
Indeed. I do. And I'll never, never say
another word or do another thing to make
him want to go."
A chair was placed for Mrs. Reynolds tn
the hallway so that while she was con
cealed she could see.
Ail day long he kept her watch, not
even going out for lunch. And Just as she
was despairing Mr. Reynolds appeared.
He looked haggard and despondent. Those
whi saw him say when the woman flung
her arms around his neck his face lighted
up wonderfully. He kissed her and then
they left the building together.
NORTH PLATTE ASKS STATION
Llurolu County Metropolis Will De

"We aro starting a campaign to get an
appropriation of $00,000 through the next
legislature for an experimental station; at
North Platte," said M. H. Douglas of that
city, who was In Omaha Friday. "The
farmers are fast learning how to get crops
from the soli of western Nebraska, but an
experimental station would be able to bring
big results so much the quicker and would
ln a very abort time more than pay for
Itself. North Platte Is booming and theru

you today gave out a statement ln regard
to the situation In which he says that
the deficit of $11,000,000 shown by the treas
ury statements Is more apparent than real,
because of the antiquated bookkeeping
system, which is being overhauled and con
tended that "considering the ordinary re
ceipts of the government," there Is really
a surplus. The secretary says that the
Items Included under ordinary expenditures
are such as might properly be covered by
the Issue of bonds Instead of paid out of
current revenues, the latter method con
stituting an exhibition of financial
strength, which shows only an Imaginary
deficit. The statement cites methods of
special accounting of foreign governments
along these lines.

BRYAN ASKED 10 WITHDRAW
Herman Ridder of New York Telh
Nebraskan He Cannot Win.
LINCOLN MAN CANNOT SEE IT
Two Talk Over the Platform nnd
Agree on Practically F.very
thlng F.icent Candidacy
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN. July 8 (Special Telegram.)
Herman Rldder. editor of the Staats
Zeltting of New York, the man heralded
as coming to Lincoln to make W. J.
Bryan get off the ticket he Is about to
name, made his demand on Bryan, was
turned down and left at 6 o'clock for Den
ver to work for the defeat of the Ne
braskan In the convention. He mide the
promise, however, that If Bryan Is nom
inated on a conservative platform he will
"I said to Mr. Bryan," said Mr. Rldder,
"you cannot carry New York and you
cannot b elected. Why don't you etep
aside and permit the nomination of somo
man who can be elected?"
Mr. Bryan replied: "I can carry New
York and I can be elected even If I do
not carry New York."
"We then discussed the platform nnd
Mr. Bryan and I agreed upon the tarirf
and the trusts. These we both agreed
are the two great Issues before the people.
We favor the Immediate revision of the
tariff on the necessities of life and for
putting on the free list all commodities
whose sale Is controlled by the trusts.
We want stringent laws against the or
ganization of trusts. On these two planka
I am free to say Mr. Bryan heartily agreed
Bryan O. K.'a One Plunk.
Mr. Rldder presented to Mr. Biyan a
plank for placing wood pulp on the free
list. This plank Mr. Bryan Blgned after
writing on It:
"Dear Mr. Rldder, I am In favor of the
above plank Just as It Is."
The plank Is a follows:
Every consideration of public policy sug
gests the conservation of our woodlands
and the lemoval of those Important du
ties which put a premium upon the de
struction of our forests. Existing duties
have given paper manufacturers a fchei
ter behind which they have organized com
binations to raise the price of pulp and
of paper and to impose a tax upon Know l
edge. The revenues derived from l.nport
duties on pulp and printing paper art so
small and the benflts to be obtained from
the abolition of these duties are so con
siderable that we endorse the attitude of
the democratic representatives In con
gress, who unanimously favored the
placing of pulp and printing paper on the
"Mr. Bryan is opposed to anything In the
platform about the government ownership
of railways," continued Mr. Rldder, "and
we are not going to have any free silver
in the platform. The silver Issue Is dead nnd
Mr. Bryan ha repudiated the statements
published about his sayings on the govern
ment ownership of railroads.
"I told Mr. Bryan I favored a labor plank
which would provide that the trial in In
dustrial dispute should be before 'a Judge
other than the one issuing the Injunction.
I favor the enactment of a law provld'ng
In" times of financial stringency, with the
approval of the secretary of the treasury,
money can be loaned to banks on the same
collateral which the states compel savings
banks to invest In.
Bryan Takes It Seriously.
"Mr. Bryan did not laugh when I re
quested him to get off of the ticket. It Is
a serious matter with htm and he treated
it as such. Of course, I was ln hU h me
t.nd treated him cour eously though I talked
to him as I told you I did."
It was reported here this afternoon that
Mr. Ridder was the author of the Parker
Cleveland resolutions. Mr. R'dder when
asked If he had written the resolutions
"Indued I did not. I would not do auch a
thing and I do not approve of bringing a
dead man Into a convention to fight over.
Resolutions of respect will be adopted for
Grover Clevelund, but not such as have
been reported in the newspapers."
Fenator Gore of Oklahoma Is another ex
ample of what the Bryan steam roller
Senator Gore came In last night ond at
his breakfast table this morning said when
asked several pointed questions about the
vice president and platform: "There are a
lot of things I think which I cannot say."
Senator Gore had not seen Bryan then.
On one proposition tho Oklahoma senator
was positive, and that was the Cleveland
resolutions. He said:
"The resolutions proposed by Judge
Parker do not grow out of friendship for
Grover Cleveland. The proposition U In
delicate and political. It Is fortunate that
the full text of the resolutions was made
public at this early date, so that the real
friends of Grover Cleveland will be ln a
position to prepare suitable resolutions."
Core on Injunctions,
Senator Gore said the democratic party
Is a friend both to the laboring man and
to capital. The Injunction plank would be
satisfactory. He believed ln Industrial dis
pute the Injunction should not Issue until
after a hearing
Mose P. Metner. the Missouri "trust
buster," and OUIe James of Kentucky
called at Falrvlew till morning and neither
had anything of Importance to say. To
night the Bryan dinner will bo held and
none of the speakers has prepared any
thing In advance. Mr. Bryan will be con
sulted before the speeches are made.
A friendly conference between Mr. Bryan
and T. D. O'Brien of Minnesota, manager
for John A. Johnson, also attracted atten
tion. "Why should I not wish to see my old
friend," wa the remark of Mr. Bryan
when asked what was the significance of
Mr. O'Brien's call That waa all he would
say, but the Inference was leit that prac
tical politics were In no way to be tabooed,
and would form the nucleus of the confer
ence. Ollle James, the Kentucky delegate who
is to second the nomination of Mr. Bryan,
discussed with the democratic leader the
subject matter to be Incorporated In his
Advance Guard from New York.
, The advance guard of the New York
delegation arrived shortly after the noon
hour, headed by Judge John D. Lynn of
Rochester. Mr. Lynn and other member
visited Falrvlew this afternoon. He does
not believe Judge Parker will offer any
resolution not in perfect taste and har
mony with the working of practical poll
tics and decline to believe he will aland

DENVER, July 8 -Refusing to be
fled hy the storm of criticism from Bryan
nun which was aroused by his resolution
eulogising the late ex-presldent, Grover
Cleveland. Judge Alton B. Parker today Is
sued n pacific statement reiterating hi
Intention to- submit to the democratic na
tional convention such an expression sn
he and his associates of th New York
delegation regard as fitting and proper. In
this connection, Charles F. Murphy, leader
of Tammany hall and head of the New
York state delegation, who alio arrived
here today, announced that he had never
seen the Parker resolutions, that they did
not represent the view of the New York
delegation and that any resolution to bo
offered must first be submitted to a caucu
of the state delegation to be held on Mon-'
Judge Parker would not discus the com
ment by Henry Wtteron of Louisville,
Ky., upon his resolution, and In fact ha
declined to give his opinion of any of the
Interview by prominent democrat based
upon the tentative draft. He laid, how
ever, that ho 1 not Irrevocably committed
to the tribute prepared by him In New
York, but that he believe the resolution
adopted should suitably acknowledge the
debt owed Mr. Cleveland by the democratic
Statement by Parker.
Judse Parker's statement follows:
"Regarding the preparation and Introduc
tion of resolutions expressing the dep re
gret of all good citizen, whether demo
crats or republicans, at the recent death
of Mr. Cleveland, and making formal rec
ognition by the democratic party of tho
great services he rendered tha country, I
have only this to say:
"It seemed to some member of th New
York delegation proper that uch resolu
tions should be presented to the conven
tion and peculiarly fitting that they should
emanate from the state which he erved
so well a governor and which gave him
to the union to become ona of the moet
honored of our many great president. It
also seemed appropriate to some of my
associates, and I do not hesitate to x
frankly, to myeeir, for reasons ' that ap
pear obvious, thst I should be the on U
offer such resolutions, and It wa and It
my Intention to do so. Whether they will
take the form Indicated by the tentative
draft published ln New York since I lofl
there I cannot say, for the simple reaaor
that I have not had time to study It care
fully. I shall do so a soon aa I have th
opportunity and shall embody such por
tions as seem to me suitable In the resolu
tion which I hope to have the privilege ol
offering. Any suggestion that my col
leagues or myself were actuated by any
motive other than a desire to pay propel
tribute on a fitting occasion I wholly
without foundation, aa I am confident
every fair minded man will recognize when
I shall have completed the resolution for
submission to the convention."
Statement by Murphy
The statement given dut by Mr. Murphy
was as follows:
"My attention ha Just been called to
an Interview said to have been given by
Judge Parker and to resolution about Mr.
Cleveland which he talk of Introducing
at the convention. I have not seen or heard
of the resolutions before. They represent.
I take It, his personal view, but have not
been submitted to a caucus of New York
delegate and cannot be put forward as
representing the view of the delegation.
Any resolution or planks offered by New
York state will first be acted on by a
caucu of delegates.
"New York state comes to this conven
tion to bring all democrat together and
to win a victory for the party, and we In
tend to take only such action a will bring
about that result. W hope the delegate
from all other parta of the country are
animated by the aame spirit, a tn that way
only can an end be put to republican mis
rule." The atatement by Judge Parker waa
made on the Overland Limited train on the
Union Pacific railroad to a representative
of the Associated Press, who met this
train at Fort Morgan, Colo., at 1 p. m.,
and accompanied the Judge and William F.
Sheehan, also a delegate-at-large from
New York state, on the remainder of their
Journey to Denver. Judge Parker mad the
tatement In the form of an Interview and
later decided that It should be Issued a
a formal expression of his position on th
question of honoring Mr. Cleveland' mem
ory. Speaking Informally he made It Clear
that he wa expressing his own view and
that his course should be guided entirely
by the wishes of the majority of th New
York delegation and voiced In the cauou

Skillfully parrying all question relative
to hi position on the platform to be
adopted and declining to give his opinion
as to whether he believed Mr. Bryan would

ically that he would not be plaoed In a
false light. He declared that whatever
platform I adopted by the convention and
no matter who I the nominee for president
that he would tupport the ticket and do
everything In hi power to contribute to

needed and that he believed that there 1
